Non-toxic, safer bath tubs

Every bathtub out in the marketplace is either plastic or silicone.  The mainstream manufacturers often use low quality plastics that are toxic.  A rule of thumb is to avoid plastics as much as possible because of the chemicals and substances that it can release even if it is marketed/labeled as BPA free.

So, finding an eco-friendly bathtub was challenging since I had to examine the type, quality of the plastics and most especially the manufacturer.

Here’s the list for safer, non-toxic bath tubs:

Puj Tub

  • Foldable tub
  • Suited for newborn/infant up to 6 months
  • Mold and mildew resistant. I reached out to the company regarding this.  Any product that is “resistant” to something could be suspect.   See below.
  • BPA/PVC free material

Here’s what the folks at Pub customer support provided:

Our tubs are made from a closed cell foam – this means the material is non-absorbent. It is this non-absorbent quality of the material that makes it mold and mildew resistant. We do not treat the material with any chemicals or substances : )”

When I clarified the material of the closed cell foam, here’s what they responded:

“We are unable to identify the exact materials used because they are considered proprietary information. The material and products have passed all safety and chemical requirements for the USA, Canada, and some for the EU. We also regularly test for BPA, PVC, and a number of other potentially harmful chemicals which can be found in some common household products – and our tubs pass those tests as well.”
